Jets give Oilers "too much respect" in 6-3 loss

Laine scores two power-play goals but Jets fall in third of a three-game home stand

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - The high-flying Edmonton Oilers came into the night with their offence in a rut, scoring just five goals and going 0-for-12 on the power play in their past three games, all defeats.

No more.

The Oilers, led by Mark Letestu and Leon Draisaitl's greasy two-goal efforts, got three on the power play Thursday to help them sail past the Jets by a 6-3 margin.

The Jets, who had a five-game home winning streak come to an end, had only one successful penalty kill.

With the win, the Oilers improve to 8-1 this year when scoring at least one power-play marker.

Patrik Laine scored twice for the Jets - both on the power play - while Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves, but was pulled after the sixth Oilers goal.

WINNIPEG - With two wins already under their belt on a current three-game home stand, the Winnipeg Jets (11-12-2) look for a third straight victory tonight when they take on the Edmonton Oilers (12-10-2).

The Jets have won four straight games at home, dating back to a 3-2 shootout win over Los Angeles on Nov. 13. The streak has bumped the team's record inside MTS Centre to 8-4-0.

"The match ups seem to help us out here at home. I think we're able to run our bench and dictate the terms a bit at home," said Blake Wheeler. "I think it helps to get (Mark Scheifele), Patrik (Laine), and (Nikolaj Ehlers) those offensive zone starts. Sometimes on the road it can be tough to dictate that match up… I think we've liked the way that shakes out at home."

Jets hold off Devils for second straight win

Scheifele, Wheeler, Laine, Little & Hellebuyck shine in Jets' win

by Ryan Dittrick @ryandittrick / WinnipegJets.com

WINNIPEG - Head Coach Paul Maurice has said it time and time again: The Winnipeg Jets are going to have to get comfortable, and learn how to win games like the one we saw Tuesday in different ways all year.

It was more of a "grinder" on this night, with the Jets opening up a two-goal lead before the Devils fought back to make it a game of it with a strong push down the stretch. But the home side held on, showing that same battle, will and determination that them helped get back in the win column just a couple days ago.

Suffice it to say: They're back on track.

Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler, Patrik Laine supplied the offence, while Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves to help the Jets knock off the Devils 3-2 at MTS Centre.
